I’ll be the first to admit that black is not the first color that comes to mind when I think about summer attire, yet this year, it’s having a moment and I must admit that there is something really chic about black summer pieces. The key to wearing this trend is to pair it with the right accessories. And what are those “right accessories” you may ask? Well, black looks incredibly elegant and chic for summer when you opt for gold jewelry, straw hats and summer appropriate footwear (sandals, espadrilles and slides).
Of all the black pieces you can wear this summer – a little black dress in eyelet, lace or linen is definitely my favorite option. Obviously great for day, you can easily dress it up for night, it’s a perfect option to take on a vacation with you thanks to it’s versatility. Basically, you will definitely wear it and wear it a lot!
Jewelry: I love to wear all black outfits with either gold or shell jewelry! It gives your outfit an extra pop of sparkle, not to mention that black and gold is such a stunning combination!
Straw and neutral accents are perfect companions for black summer outfits – they give all black ensembles that “vacationy” look and feel!
Last but certainly not least is footwear! I am actually really partial to a good pair of black sandals or espadrilles! The ones I am wearing in this post are about a year old, and they are still my favorite!
